The album features a unique blend of new age and pop styles of mostly original spiritual/meditation music sung by Bethani, who also plays keyboards and recorded most of the background vocals. Darryl Dunn arranged, co-produced and recorded the CD. He also plays keys/synthesizers on the disc. The music has been compared to the style of music produced by new age artists such as Enya.
The CD has seen brisk sales since its release mid December. It was the number one selling Texas Artist CD in Austin's Tower Records for the week before Christmas and 7th in the store's entire stock. At Austin's Waterloo Records it continues to be a favorite and made the Top Ten Selling Texas Artists list during the same time period. In the first month of its release "Go Within" sold 1,000 copies in Austin alone.
In addition to writing, singing and recording original music, Bethani is on the faculty of the Commercial Music Department at McLennan Community College and is the music director for Unity Church of the Hills in Austin. However, performance is central to Bethani's artistry. "There's a lifeline between me and my audience," she says. "I like to get inside the music and take them along with me." And take them she does. According to KUT's John Aielli, "The music is the real thing-straight from the heart."
